    Do any of the Alaskan port adventures go to national parks? If so, are they suitable for a 7 & 11 year old? Thanks!

    Ahoy Holly!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  You are going to love the natural beauty of sailing on the Disney Wonder to Alaska!  Like in our own state, there are many outdoor activities to enjoy at each Alaskan port.  I am so excited for you to experience it all!

    Disney Cruise Line offers a wide variety of Port Adventures in Alaska.  When I visited Juneau with my family, one of our favorite Port Adventures of our trip was a visit to Mendenhall Glacier and Tongass National Forrest.  Not only were the views breathtaking, but you can hike through the trails to a waterfall near the foot of the glacier.  My daughter was 8 years old at the time and she did not have any problems completing the hike, in fact, she was leading the way!  I think both of your pirates-in-training would enjoy this Port Adventure.

    Your family also has the opportunity to see a national treasure if you cruise sails to Ketchikan.  The Misty Fjords and Wilderness Explorer Port Adventure includes a visit to the Misty Fjords National Monument while taking in all of the Alaskan wildlife including whales and bald eagles!  If you are visiting Skagway, many of the Port Adventures center around the history of the nearby Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park.

    I hope I have steered you in the right direction as you plan your Alaskan adventure!  Cruise back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any additional questions before you set sail.

    "Sea" ya real soon!  Angie
